Utterly brilliant

Excellent performance all round today, no coincidence in my mind that our best performance of the season that I've seen has come when Kevin and Casey are both in the side. Great day, I even won a football coupon for a change! Let's hope for a kind draw now that one's out of the way. Onwards and upwards, see you on Tuesday!

What an afternoon of football. Casey and kevin virtually stopped them from playing if it came down the middle. Should have been 2 or 3 up by half time if we had taken our chances.

Looked stronger and stronger as the game went on and the final whistle was greeted with delight from everyone involved with the club. Nice to see supporters old and new in the ground.

Let's hope for a kind draw but let's not forget, this was an exceptional hendon performance and other teams wont want to play us on that evidence.

Great result,

Hadley please in the next round, just above Edgware town near the bottom of the South Midlands Premier, and one of the geographically closest remaining teams.

This must be the best all round team performance since the 2-1 home victory over Maidstone the season before last.

Agree that Casey and Kevin together made all the difference. It seemed to give the other players the freedom to play.

In other news, Leatherhead appoint Jimmy Bullard as manager. What must that be costing? Must be the Surrey stockbroker effect!

Have to agree Paul. We played well - lots of commitment, some great tackles and interceptions. Pleased with the few fouls conceded when defending. By the way, the second goal was definitely an o.g. by no.6 who diverted in a low cross (which wasn't going in) by Luke.

The crowd of 800 plus should mean we get at least 1500 smackers to add to the 4500 for the win.

Luke Tingey's strike would have entered the net without any intervention in my opinion. Their keeper should have been able to at least block the cross cum shot but had absolutely no chance after the deflection. That's how I saw it. Having said that, my first instinct was "own goal".

Superb performance. I just have to laugh at a Dulwich forum posting grumbling that we were a very basic team. The pace of Oliyide and Kahle Da Costa wide and the holding play of Nico Muir centrally backed up by a great midfield and unbreachable defence was just too much for them.

Well, it depends on how you interpret the phrase "very basic team". I too thought Hendon were a fairly basic team, but there's less that can go wrong when you keep it simple. Hendon defended doggedly, were solid in the centre of midfield and attacked well with pace and width; the centre forward scored a well taken goal and they caught Dulwich napping with a bit of imagination at a free kick. Meanwhile Dulwich played lots of pretty passing football with little end product, several good players were rendered less effective by playing out of their best positions, they didn't field a proper striker (with two left on the bench) and looked very lightweight up front, and all of the most difficult saves had to be made by the Dulwich keeper. I'd have been quite grateful for something a bit more 'basic' from my team.

Attitude and Application.

Doff of the cap to the Gaffer. Perfectly executed plan. Allowing us to get in the acendency.
Mentally we made them look frail. Never in doubt. The lads at the finish looked like thoroughbreds, could have gone another couple of laps. They looked dismissive. Majestic.
Personal best Hendon game, Eastbourne away. Similarities. A Maclaren brought off with ten to go having given everything. Best form of their careers.
Bigger picture the next couple of years look enterprising. Stick around and realise your potential.
Delighted for everybody.

I'd have liked to have seen a better standard of throw-in.
